While driving on a dark road something caught my attention. it look like an extremely oversized pulsating star in the sky. the road i was on a straight road so i was able to watch the object. it was glowing bright yellow, with orange. it was also pulsating. i lost sight of it behind some trees and when i got further down the road, it seemed to be right next to my car, to my left, about 20 ft above the tree line. my first thought was that it was a drone, so i put my window down. there was absolutely no sound. i've never seen a drone that looked exactly like a star so i ruled that out. i got to where i was going to pick my daughter up, to go back the way we came to go home. i pointed it out to her and she saw it immediately. she began to watch it while i drove. it was now to the right of us, but in the same spot. as we started to go se, there it was right next to us in the sky. since there were no other cars on the road we were traveling we slowed down and came to a stop to watch it, where it was hovering right above what was once my daughters grade school. as we were slowing down, the thing went completely black. when we stopped, it flashed red, then went back to looking a now yellow/orangish star like thing. we got a closer look of it from a where we were and could now see that it was hovering slightly. we began driving again down the road, and we could still see it, as if i was driving along with us. we were driving slowly watching it and i started to hear a jet-like sound in the distance. it got louder and louder, and sounded like a large helicopter. was flying right above us, although we couldn't see where it was in the sky. by the time we pulled in the drive way, the star like object was now red. we watched it for awhile from the window, then lost interest in watching it.
